Lately, I've really been obsessed about getting back into sewing. Maybe it's because I spent a fortune fixing my beloved Pfaff that my mother bought me when I was in high school and I want to use it. Or maybe, I just need yet another creative outlet to channel all my extra energy built up from going back to the gym four weeks ago. Anyhow, whatever that's possessing me to put my needles and yarn down to take on another crafty pursuit, here's my first small completed project to help me get back into the sewing groove--a reversible fabric headband. I followed a fantastic tutorial by Kate of KC Quilts and was fairly happy with the end result, but would probably make the headband next time just slightly narrower (by 1 cm) to suit my head shape. I chose a cotton cherry blosssom print for one side of the headband and a chocolate linen for the other, both from my small fabric stash. I'll try this headband again, but I'm already onto the Artsy Clutch from Amy Karol's bend-the-rules sewing book.
